Luxury Holiday Rental Ronda

"FAULTLESS LUXURY: From the initial booking process to the service throughout, this really made our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

We have rented several villas in the past, but on this occasion we were truly made to feel welcome rather than an inconvenience (which has been our experience in the past). This attitude filters down to the property and its facilities. The house is homely, with good quality linens, towels, kitchen equipment, furniture etc. It doesn't feel like your usual rental property.

Plus points
The welcome and service throughout your stay.
The welcome hamper (everything you needed for your first morning)
The pool
The bedrooms and lounge
The local BBQ restaurant a few minutes walk away.
The website (very informative and 100% accurate)
The information pack with great tips especially the suggested drives and walks
The privacy
The views
The garden and grounds
The kitchen and all of its facilities

Down sides
None really, it suited our break perfectly. A few points to be aware of but we were made aware at the early stages of booking. Definitely need a car. Shops are about 15min drive away. Other than the local BBQ restaurant, no restaurants within walking distance.

I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for an excellent house with great facilities and brilliant service, for a peaceful stay in the sun. Just make sure it's the right house for you."

Ramsey & Faye - July 2016

"THE ONLY UNFORTUNATE PART OF STAYING AT La Cancela WAS HAVING TO LEAVE………….Thank you Caroline and Robert for your warm welcome, your availability to answer any questions, and for the thoughtful welcome package. Truly appreciated after a busy travel day. La Cancela: We have fallen under your spell."

Barbara, Dave, Ann and John, Toronto Canada - 2016

"After ten days relaxing we are sorry to be leaving and would definitely return. The Finca is delightful, well organised and equipped very well. The attention to detail and support from Caroline and Robert has been top notch. We particularly appreciated the superbly manicured garden. Thank you for a wonderful destination."

Richard, Caroline, George and Annabelle - 2016

R & P - 2016

"Sad to leave such a lovely villa, gorgeous gardens, refreshing pool and wonderful location. Thanks to Caroline and Robert for their hospitality. Kind regards."

Ben, Maisie and Lily - 2016

"What a wonderful fortnight. All four of us have had an amazing time discovering Andalucia and relaxing in the beautiful surrounds of La Cancela!! It was all made even more stress free by the fantastic hospitality of Robert, Caroline, Lawrence and Isabel and Ana (The Maridadi staff team). Very sad to be leaving!!"

Hannah, Yann, Sebastien and Yolanda - 2016

"From the moment we arrived to the warmest of welcomes from Robert & Caroline, our stay here EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. The villa is perfect in the rural setting but close enough to Ronda that made visiting the many sights and restaurants an easy experience. We took up many of the recommendations and enjoyed them all. Coming back in the heat of the day to the refreshing pool in this lovely garden was bliss. A great visit which will provide us with wonderful memories. Thank you."

Greg and Fiona - 2016

"This is a 5 star place in every way: roomy, beautiful, wonderfully 'equipped' with everything visitors could want, including all the special treats Caroline and Robert provided... Thankyou Caroline and Robert for our best stay ever at a European villa - we hope to be back in the future!"

The Weavers - April 2015

"We are just reflecting on our second stay at La Cancela, this time for two weeks. The villa is a fabulous retreat in a most pleasant and interesting setting. We saw woodpeckers in the morning and keep your eyes open while poolside for an eagle or two catching the thermals in the late afternoon. All in all a great holiday, great villa and marvellous part of the world. Big thanks to Caroline and Robert."

David and Angela - August 2015

"We have had a wonderful relaxing time in this beautiful and romantic villa. It was our first visit to Andalucia, one to remember for a long time. Thank you Robert and Caroline for your very warm welcome! We hope to see you again some day."

Jack, Susanne, Sofie and Floortje - August 2015

"We have had a fantastic week in this beautiful clean villa in a quiet environment with lots of privacy!! Special thanks to Robert and Caroline and her team for the excellent service (never seen before!!). Together with her team, Caroline made our stay a memorable moment we won't forget soon. Everything was just PERFECT!!! Every year we take a week or two but this time was significantly better – (quality villa/pool/service/towels/welcome pack/breakfast/garden etc. too much to list!! Thanks for everything and please continue in the same way."

Tariq Rabiha and family - August 2015

"My wife and I and adult son stayed here for a week in July. The property was exactly as described on the website - unusual in our experience - and we had a really good stay. We were very well looked after by the property managers, Caroline & Robert, who gave us great advice, on where to eat and shop - indispensable! Ronda is perfect for rest and recuperation away from the teeming coast, and I would highly recommend La Cancela as a place to stay."

Robin Landman - July 2015
